So this is a thing. A bot is rigged up to relay input commands from the Twitch chat to the game, Pokemon. There are ~30k viewers at the moment. I don't know what percentage of them are putting commands into the chat but I've been watching on and off for a little while, and it's somewhat mesmerizing. Apparently they've managed to clear three gyms so far. Oh, and there's about a 20-second chat delay. Of course, there are a bunch of @#%^s constantly spamming "start" so a lot of time is spent in menus and the Pokedex.
At times, it seems like the owner might be taking manual control, but I'm not sure.
